1 رَجَعَ ذ , aor. رَجِعَ , inf. n. رُجُوعٌ (S, Msb, K, &c.) and رَجْعٌ, (M, Msb,) but the former is that which commonly obtains and is agreeable with analogy as inf. n. of the intrans. v., and the latter as inf. n. of the trans. v., (MF, TA,) and مَرْجَعٌ, (S, Msb, K, &c.,) which is anomalous, because inf. ns. [of this kind] of verbs of the measure فَعَلَ having the aor. of the measure يَفْعِلُ are [by rule] only with fet-h [to the medial radical], (S, K,) and مَرْجِعَةٌ, which is in like manner anomalous, (K,) and رُجْعَى, (S, Msb, K,) [not رُجْعًى as in the Lexicons of Golius and Freytag,] and رُجْعَانٌ, (K,) He returned; he went, or came, back [to the same place, or person, or (assumed tropical:) state, or (assumed tropical:) occupation, or (assumed tropical:) action, or (assumed tropical:) saying, &c.]; he reverted; contr. of ذَهَبَ; (ISk, Msb;) i. q. انْصَرَفَ: (K:) رُجُوعٌ signifies the returning to a former place, or (assumed tropical:) quality, or (assumed tropical:) state; (Kull p. 196;) the returning to that from which was the commencement, or from which the commencement is supposed to have been, whether it be a place, or (assumed tropical:) an action, or (assumed tropical:) a saying, and whether the returning be by the [whole] person or thing, or by a part thereof, or by an action thereof. (Er-Rághib.) Hence the saying in the Kur [lxiii. 8], لَئِنْ رَجَعْنَا إِِلَى المَدِينَةِ [Verily if we return to the city]. (Er-Rághib.) And [in the same, xii. 63,] فَلَمَّا رَجَعُوا إِِلَى أَبِيهِمْ [And when they returned to their father]. (Idem.) And in the same, [vi. 164, and xxxix. 9,] ثُمَّ إِِلَى رَبِّكُمْ مَرْجِعُكُمْ [Then unto your Lord shall be your return]: (S:) the like of which occurs in the same, vi. 60: but it may be either from [the intrans. inf. n.] رُجُوعٌ or from [the trans.] رَجْعٌ: (Er-Rághib:) it cannot be a n. of place, because it is made trans. by means of إِِلَى, and also because it occurs in the Kur [v. 53, &c.], followed by جَمِيعًا, as a denotative of state: (L:) in like manner الرُّجْعَى also occurs in the Kur xcvi. 8. (TA.) You say also, رَجَعَتِ المَرْأَةُ إِِلَى أَهْلِهَا The woman returned to her family by reason of the death of her husband or by reason of divorcement. (Msb.) ― -b2- رَجَعَ إِِلَى الصِّحَّةِ (assumed tropical:) [He returned to soundness, or health], or المَرَضِ [disease, or sickness]; and إِِلَى حَالَةِ الفَقْرِ (assumed tropical:) [to the state of poverty], or الغِنَى (assumed tropical:) [wealth, or competence, or sufficiency].

(Kull p. 197.) ― -b7- رَجَعَ عَنِ الذَّنْبِ (assumed tropical:) [He relinquished sin; i. e.] he repented; and so رَجَعَ alone, agreeably with the usage in the Kur iii. 65, &c. (Er-Rághib.) ― -b8- [Several other phrases, in which this verb occurs, will be found in other arts.: as رَجَعَ عَلَى ظَهْرِهِ in art. ظهر: رَجَعْتُ القَهْقَرَى in art. قهقر: رَجَعَ دَرَجَهُ, and variations thereof, in art. درج: &c.] ― -b9- رَجَعَ إِِلَيْهِ [sometimes signifies the same as رَجَعَ عَلَيْهِ] He returned against him; he returned to attack him.

(IAth, TA in art. خلط.) And [in like manner you say,] عَلَى الغَرِيمِاِرْتَجَعَ , and المُتَّهَمِ, (assumed tropical:) He sued, prosecuted, or made a demand upon, the debtor, and the suspected, for his right, or due. (TA: [in which it is said, immediately before this, that ارتجع is like رَجَعَ.]) ― -b14- رَجَعَ الكَلْبُ فِى قَيْئِهِ The dog returned to his vomit, (Msb, TA,) and ate it. (Msb.) ― -b15- Hence, رَجَعَ فِى هِبَتِهِ (tropical:) He took back his gift; repossessed himself of it; restored it to his possession; (Msb;) as also ↓ ارتجعها , (Mgh, Msb, TA,) and ↓ استرجعها .

(TA in art. نصب.) ― -b18- [يَرْجِعُ إِِلَى مَعْنَى كَذَا (assumed tropical:) It (a word used in a certain sense) is referrible, or reducible, to such a meaning. And يُرْجِعُ إِِلَى كَذَا, said of a word, also means (assumed tropical:) It relates to such a thing; i. e., to such another word, in grammatical construction.] ― -b19- رَجَعَ إِِلَى قَدْرِ كَذَا (assumed tropical:) It (wine when cooked) became reduced to such a quantity; syn. آلَ. (S in art. اول.) ― -b20- رَجَعَ الحَوْضُ إِِلَى إِِزَائِهِ The water of the trough, or tank, became much in quantity [so that it returned to the height of the place whence it poured in]. (TA.) ― -b21- ↓ رِجَاعٌ , also, is an inf. n. of this verb, (L,) and is used as signifying The returning of birds after their migrating to a hot country. (S, L, K.) You say, رَجَعَتِ الطَّيْرُ القَوَاطِعُ, inf. n. رِجَاعٌ and رَجْعٌ, The migratory birds returned. (L.) ― -b22- Also inf. n. of رَجَعَتْ said of a-she camel, and of a she-ass, signifying (assumed tropical:) She raised her tail, and compressed her two sides (قُطْرَيْهَا), and cast forth her urine in repeated discharges, so that she was imagined to be pregnant, (S, K,) and then failed of fulfilling her [apparent] promise: (S: [in some copies of which, as is said in the TA, the inf. n. of the verb in this sense is written رُجُوع:]) or she conceived, and then failed of fulfilling her promise; because she who does so goes back from what is hoped of her: (TA:) or, said of a she-camel, she cast forth her fœtus in an imperfect state: (AZ, TA,) or, as some say, her embryo in a fluid state: (TA:) or in an unformed state; inf. n. رِجَاعٌ.

[All these significations are well known, as pertaining to the two verbs here mentioned, and of frequent occurrence in classical and postclassical writings: and hence several phrases here following.] ― -b2- See 1, last quarter of the paragraph, in five places. ― -b3- Hence, (Mgh,) التَّرْجِيعُ فِى الأَذَانِ, (S, Mgh, K,) because the two professions of the faith [for which see the word أَذَانٌ] are uttered in the اذان [or call to prayer] in a low voice [and then repeated in a high voice]; (Mgh;) [for] this phrase means (tropical:) The repeating the two professions of the faith in a raised, or loud, voice, after uttering them in a low, or faint, voice; (Sgh, K, TA;) or the lowering of the voice in the اذان in uttering the two professions of the faith, and then raising it in uttering them: (KT:) or رجّع فِى أَذَانِهِ signifies he uttered the two professions of the faith in his اذان once to repeat them.
